OUR CAMPUS AND CITY

Originally located in a heritage building in the heart of Gastown, Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, we’ve recently expanded into a second campus in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. Located in the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples – the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam Nations – our new Seymour Campus is dedicated to classroom space for our in-person programs. Across the street, we maintain a large studio space for InFocus Film Production students and a rental space for independent filmmakers to shoot.

Filmmaking takes time, and for that reason we make our rooms and computer labs available for student use all day. Classrooms, editing studios, studio space, and meeting rooms are available at any time the room is not being used for a class. The same is true for all programs. Screenwriting students will always have a quiet place to write and animators can burn the midnight oil in the 3D studio when completing their demo reels.

With a prime location in the downtown core, we are accessible from multiple major transit routes and easily reached by bicycle. We are within walking distance of hundreds of restaurants, shops, and cafes, and are minutes from both ocean and mountains. InFocus Film School is truly the ideal location to study film.
